Just won this, its a vintage diecast snowspeeder, but its been given a modern paintjob, so thought it best belonged over here, I just thought it was cool, completely repainted even the little figures, best part is it was only 4.20! started at 99 pence, threw a cheeky five pound bid on it and its mine

Very nice. Looks like they did a black wash on it. I went a little overboard on that with my Hero Series Falcon. Now it has much more black in the grooves than any of the screen-used versions did lol but it looks right without direct comparison.

To be fair, those can almost all use a bit of colour, Slave1 especially. I wouldn't paint one myself but can't say I'm particularly interested in them due to their mostly dull or non-existent colour schemes. Carded are nice though Very Happy

Hey Chris, yeah it does look better with a touch of paint, he even painted the figures and put tiny details on the dashboard really well done
love to see your falcon,, I repainted my own bmf falcon, its a lot darker than the original but I like it
